with the actions of the mexican government. the mexican government has cooperated with us in efforts to stem this particular problem, to limit this particular problem and continues to work with us in ways we might reverse it. but the underlying problem as i said to president calderon and others, the underlying problem is in the canadian refugee laws and far too easy in canada to make a bogus refugee claim as a way of entering the country tli. we have to change that. it is unfair to those that are legitimate refugees and unfair to hundreds of thousands that are working their way through the immigration system. we will continue to work with mexican authorities to try and limit this problem, but in the absence of legislative change, it is very difficult for our government to control this, other than through the imposition of visa. it is the only tool available to us right now. we need additional tools from our parliament to stem the flow of bogus refugee claimants and also to have additional tools to deal with this kind of problem. >> alex panett amount, canadian press. >> translator: very impo
